‘I can't go because there is a bear behind me:' Colorado Springs woman finds surprise in garage

There are good excuses for being late, and then there is the fact that there is literally a bear in your garage.

A Colorado Springs resident was caught on camera telling this 'freakin' bear' to get out of her garage. 

There are good excuses for being late, and then there is the fact that there is literally a bear blocking your car.

This is what one Colorado Springs woman got to experience when she pulled into her garage on Tuesday – but she handled it like a champ.

In a video she provided to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the woman is heard telling the “freakin’ bear” to get out of her garage – especially when it walked toward the refrigerator.

She also said what might possibly be the best excuse ever to get out of any situation: “Um, I can’t go because there is a bear behind me.”

The woman is heard honking and getting the bear to run into her driveway, and it’s all caught on her backup camera – which notifies her there is a hazard behind her car that HAPPENS TO BE A BEAR.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife tells KOAA-TV this is believed to be the same bear that was caught on camera stealing ice cream and M&Ms from a garage in the same neighborhood.

They’re working to track the bear down.
